• The large broad leaflets of this plant resemble those of C. Mmcludtiana and C,
paoni&folia. The flowers are the largest of any species known to us. Oar speci-
mens are not very good, and the species may possibly be more properly referable to
the section including (7. vutcEfolw..

A handsome species, very variable in stature and in the size of all its parts, espe-
cially of the bracts ; it has been compared with the Siberian C. nobtiia and C. brae-
fcaict, from the former of which it differs in the flowering stem being more of a
scape, with no cauline leaves, or few and small ones, and in the winged outer petals
and narrower spur. 0. Iracleata, again, belongs to the same section as C. ru&e-
folia, and has 110 near affinity with this.

fidisve, calcaro subrecto flore sequilongo, petalis exterioribus apice cu-
